Adam Monroe的Honky Tonk钢琴是适用于Windows和OSX的32/64位VST AU AAX插件
Adam Monroe的Honky Tonk钢琴主要是通过Neumann TLM 102麦克风从老式的Chickering立式钢琴中采样的（确切年龄未知）。毫无疑问，钢琴似乎有些动作，尽管可以调音（一次调一个音符），但钢琴的音调有点“ hon谐”。钢琴是在盖子打开的情况下进行近距离采样的，单声道打开，但是每个音符都经过仔细摇摄以产生立体声效果。最初使用AKG D112来捕获较低的频率，但是TLM 102本身做得很好。
Adam Monroe的Honky Tonk钢琴的联系方式已弃用（12.16.2019）。 VST，音频单元和AAX版本由Adam Monroe Music编程。也是VSTi（虚拟仪器），AU（音频单元）或AAX插件的任何示例库中的目标都是尝试匹配Kontakt Player（或其他第三方播放器）的性能。有了这个库，我们觉得我们已经做到了。
VST，AU和AAX版本包括更新的高性能算法，随着Adam Monroe Music发布的每台新虚拟乐器都在不断改进。例如，缓冲算法是双缓冲和多线程的，这意味着即使在速度较慢的计算机上，甚至在较低的延迟下，缓冲性能也很快。声音以纯C风格的数组保留和迭代。内存使用量与（降级的）联系版本相当。实时采样率转换（通过三次插值）已添加到AU，VST和AAX版本中，以原生支持44.1、48、88.2和96 kHz的采样率。由于VST / AU / AAX的代码基础扎实，并且-无需外部.dll的/ objects / libs即可编译代码-您可以确信VST，AU和AAX版本将与（折旧）联系人版本。
音频工程是创建VST，Protools或Audio Unit插件的很大一部分，您会发现一些有用的东西，例如内置在该插件中的混响，低保真和合唱。 VST版本基于VST 2.4，并且几乎可以在Windows和OS X 10.9或更高版本的32位或64位版本的任何现代版本中使用。音频单元版本与OS X 10.9或更高版本兼容，并且与32和64位DAWS兼容。 Protools版本为64位，并且需要完整版的Protools 10或更高版本。所有版本的下载大小为2.9 GB，解压缩后的库占用约4.2 GB。我们使用亚马逊提供文件服务，因此您可以放心，下载将快速而流畅！
Adam Monroe’s Honky Tonk Piano Is a 32/64-Bit VST AU AAX Plugin For Windows And OSX
* 16-Bit Audio Samples (With Separate Sustain Samples)
* 2X Round-Robin, 10 Velocity Layers
* Reverb, Chorus, Delay, And Lo-Fi effects
* Supports 44.1, 48, 88.2, and 96 kHz
THE SAMPLING PROCESS
Adam Monroe’s Honky Tonk Piano was sampled from a vintage Chickering upright piano – exact age unknown – primarily through a Neumann TLM 102 microphone. The piano had undoubtedly seem some action, and although it could be tuned (one note at a time) the tone of the piano was a bit on the “honky” side. The piano was sampled close-miced with lid open in mono, but each note was carefully panned to creat a stereo effect. An AKG D112 was used initially in order to capture the lower frequencies, but the TLM 102 did a fine enough job on its own.
We attempted to sample this piano deeply (10 velocity layers, 2 note round robin) but in the end, round robin was only partially captured, while the velocity goals were met. Unlike most piano libraries that just record one or the other, the piano was sampled with both sustain pedal open and closed, increasing the library’s size, but allowing for more expression while playing.
Once the notes were recorded, the laborious task of processing them began. Noise was removed and the piano was eq’d and compressed – yes, this is a heavily processed plugin. The end result is an EXTREMELY PURCUSSIVE and LOUD piano library that will cut through your mix. This is not a pristine, clean plugin, and the notes can be quite hard hitting! We feel this adds to the percussive nature of honky-tonk style piano playing. Although we’ve cleaned up the notes quite a bit since the VST’s initial release, we feel that too much cleaning-up starts to destroy the sound and feel of the plugin.
This piano plugin can be a great addition to your collection, as it fills a nice niche in the world of sampled upright pianos. If you need to make demos or recordings of ragtime music, or just need a generally purcussive piano, this virtual instrument is ready to become the newest member of your VST, AU, or AAX arsenal.
The Kontakt version of Adam Monroe’s Honky Tonk Piano is depreciated (12.16.2019). The VST, Audio Unit, and AAX versions are programmed by Adam Monroe Music. The goal in any sample library that is also a VSTi (virtual instrument), AU (Audio Unit), or AAX plugin is to attempt to match the performance of the Kontakt Player (or other third party players). With this library, we feel like we have done just that.
The VST, AU, and AAX versions include updated, high-performance algorithms that have been improving with each new virtual instrument released by Adam Monroe Music. For example, the buffering algorithm is double-buffered and multithreaded, which means that buffering performance is fast, even on slower computers, and even in lower latencies. Voices are held and iterated over in a pure, C-Style array. Memory use is comparable to the (depreciated) Kontakt version. Real-time sample rate conversion (through cubic interpolation) has been added to the AU, VST, and AAX versions in order to support sample rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, and 96 kHz natively. Because of the solid VST/AU/AAX code base and – and compilation of the code to not need external .dll’s/objects/libs – you can feel confident that the VST, AU, and AAX versions will work just as well as the (depreciated) Kontakt version.
Why develop VST, AU, and AAX versions at all? Although a great piece of software, the Full version of Kontakt (required to run 3rd party sample libraries) is expensive. Developing VST, AU, and AAX versions that anyone can use does not add significant time to the development of a piano sample library – most of the time is spent sampling and processing the samples – so it’s a real no-brainer.
Audio engineering is a large part of creating a VST, Protools, or Audio Unit plugin, and you will find some useful things like reverb, lo-fi, and chorus built into this plugin. The VST version is based on VST 2.4, and should work in nearly any modern version of 32 or 64 bit version of Windows and OS X 10.9 or later. The Audio Unit version is compatible with OS X 10.9 or later and is compatible with 32 and 64-bit DAWS. The Protools version is 64-bit and requires the full version of Protools 10 or later. The download size for all versions is 2.9 GB, and unzipped the library takes up about 4.2 GB. We use Amazon for file serving, so you can rest assured your download will be fast and smooth!
Release v2.71 12/10/2019
Improvements since last version:
*Mac Au/VST versions now conform to OS X Catalina code signing and notarization requirements.
*Mac versions are now installed via package installers.
*Resources for Mac versions and a config file are now placed outside of the amhonky.vst and amhonky component bundles. This is because Apple wants things code-signed now:
verifying resources in a bundle would take too long and the config can\u2019t be inside because it would invalidate the code signature. If you don\u2019t like it, complain to Apple!
*Mainting 32-bit mac versions (must install after 64-bit versions).
